UN agency appeals for Myanmar food aid

The World Food Programme has said that it urgently needs USD 11 million to buy food for some 100,000 people displaced in the sectarian violence in Myanmar.



Geneva: The World Food Programme has said that it urgently needs USD 11 million to buy food for some 100,000 people displaced in the sectarian violence in Myanmar.

The food will be supplied to people in Rakhine state for next six months, WFP spokesperson Elisabeth Byrs said on Tuesday.

Thousands of people have been affected in the state after communal violence erupted in June between the majority Buddhists and minority Muslims.

Byrs said that without an immediate donor response, WFP will be forced to cut the existing ration supplies.
